Auro Orchard is the oldest and the second largest farm of Auroville, started with the vision and blessings of the Mother in 1969. Today the 44-acre farm supplies a good part of Auroville’s organic vegetables, fruits, and the majority of the eggs produced by our farms.

Volunteers are expected to:

  •  Ideally, commit to full mornings, or otherwise to the regular timings: 1st session 7:00-9:00, 2nd session 9:30-12:00 (~11:30 in summer); this supports a positive team dynamic and effective work planning.
  • Take responsibility for their work & learning; ask ‘how’ & ‘why’ if it isn’t clear – this helps us all to develop and improve over time.
  • Follow health & safety principles, the current Section 144 requirements & the advice provided by the Covid 19 Taskforce & Working Committee.
